Fact checked

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is showing no vital signs after being shot from behind with an improvised double-barrel handgun during a speech in Nara, Japan.

Abe, who served two terms as prime minister of Japan and remained hugely influential in global politics, has suffered from cardiac arrest after being taken to the hospital, according to police and fire officials, reports Kyodo News.

The 67-year-old was shot from approximately 10 feet away. The suspect, 41-year-old Yamagami Tatsuya, did not attempt to flee, but reportedly crouched down after firing two shots and stayed on the scene until his arrest on an attempted murder charge.

Shinzo Abe was a critic of the New World Order and was re-elected for a rare second term in 2012 with a mandate to defend his country from the Chinese Communist Party and their friends in the highest echelons of the United Nations.

Abe was never afraid of speaking his mind, recently criticizing the Western response to the war in Ukraine, pointing out that Ukraine Prime Minister Zelensky was responsible for the conflict.
